Thanks, it does make for much nicer shots.

Speaking of which, I is all growed up and sinkin' ships 'n' stuff!

Having fun in "torpedo school" today, but I really do wish some of these opposing captains would learn to sail in a straight line. :O:

Caught on the surface

In for a penny, in for a pound. was in perfect position ahead and waiting for a small convoy of four merchants with one L-Class Destroyer escort. It was night and my engines were silent. Of course, the destroyer spotted my periscope, barely above the water from 3 km away. So I went to flank and dove to 25 m and drove in. I surfaced to periscope and snapped a two torpedo salvo at the first Lg merchant, set for magnetic det 12 m or so depth. Two hits. Got rammed by and depth charged by the destroyer, dove back to 25 m, made repairs, and turned toward the next large merchant. Made the same kind of shot from point blank range, heard the impacts as I dove down to 160 m, just above crush depth, to wait the destroyer out. I don't know about y'all, but I find that (Dec, 1941) at that depth, I am pretty much invulnerable to depth charge attack. I go to all stop, reload my torpedoes, then rest up my crew, waiting for the destroyer to give up and rejoin his convoy. I may have to go to 1 Kt briefly and get some distance on him. Seems to work every time.
Anyway, the 1st merchant sank very quickly, but the 2nd, with a flooded bow section, kept on keeping on. I chased him down, and manually shot him again from the stern from close range--hit, but seemingly no effect. I shot him again, again a hit, blowing off his prop, but wouldn't sink. Finally I motored to the shot you see in the picture and this shot did for him. He took 6 torpedoes, as far as I could tell, all hits.
Question--are the warheads (not the pistols, I know how unreliable they are) less effective on TI and TII torpedoes early in the war?

Jeez... lovely screens guys! Looks like there are even more graphical upgrades since I lest went for a spin in the Atlantic.

Only uninstalled SHIII a few days ago too!

To summarize the whole situation..... watch this youtube vid!

So true!

Good hunting fellow Kaleuns! :arrgh!:

@ Nodlew: You need to surface, go onto the bridge in your pajamas and shout "Turn out those &$^#%$ lights!"

frau kaleun 01-01-2010 02:37 AM

And then you can yell at the neighbor kids to get off your &$^#%$ ocean.

Half a bottle of beer for everyone!
Oh, heck, it's a holiday, make it a whole bottle.

And now on to the Convoy Attack. Should be fun now that I know how to line up and aim properly. :O:

I'm afraid if I did that someone might shoot at me again. But if I hide and stay real quiet, maybe they'll...go away.
